The Forest and Landscape Restoration Mechanism (FLRM)

Online communities of practice

Engage and learn with others engaged in Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR). Join the online community of practice facilitated by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and benefit from a community that:

  1. offers an online space for FLR practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and the private sector to find free technical advice and support for knowledge issues;
  2. organizes structured learning opportunities that respond to its members’ needs;
  3. supports innovation processes and collection of key knowledge resources and makes them widely available;
  4. increases interest in and communicates the value of FLR; and
  5. generates, tests, reviews and shares high-quality and relevant tools and knowledge documents.

This online community supports the global restoration movement in achieving its goals. As a member, you have access to:

  • webinars and the recorded videos
  • facilitated email-based exchanges – as often as you choose!
  • a network of FLR experts and practitioners
  • updates on job opportunities, events, news and knowledge resources.

The FLR online community of practice has already seen that an email exchange and webinar is useful for practitioners. The first online knowledge-sharing forum, “Innovative approaches for monitoring forest and landscape restoration”, was attended by 420 people from all over the world. Participants in the community continue to exchange their thoughts, ideas and news on the Dgroups platform of the Online Community of Practice. If you only wish to hear about the webinar and activities, join the Mailing list - FAO webinars on Forest and Landscape Restoration.

Other online activities will follow in 2018, beginning with the online knowledge-sharing forum on “Forest and landscape restoration: Participatory approaches and monitoring”.
